I asked because it could have helped avoid breakage in the meantime.

As long as perl-base only pre-depends on libc6 from squeeze, not
wheezy, it should be fine. In the initial bootstrap, libc would be
unpacked and configured before perl-base is unpacked, and during
upgrade, the order could safely be
unpack new perl-base
unpack multiarchified libc
configure multiarchified libc
configure new perl-base
To make the versions consistent between architectures, it should be
enough to make a sourceful upload that Build-Depends on

Thanks --- looks like you've thought of everything. :)
